Carabinieri 

1/4 oz. lime juice
1/4 oz. Rose’s lime juice
1 egg yolk
1/4 oz. Galliano
1 barspoon powdered sugar
1 oz. tequila
2 oz. orange juice

Shake well with ice in shaker. Strain into a small highball glass over crushed ice.

Well tequila (someday I’ll actually remember what it is). The Carabinieri (not the drink) is the national military police of Italy. I’m sure there’s an interesting story as to why this cocktail is named as it is, but I couldn’t find it. At a guess, I would say because this is a rather fortifying drink; almost a breakfast in a glass, if your breakfasts tend to include tequila. It’s not strong, alcohol wise, and not too sweet. I rather think it would make a good brunch drink.

Cin cin! (Italian)
